Nutritional therapy is the practice of healing body ailments and enhancing its efficiency by providing it with the nutrition. It is based on the principle that illnesses occur in the human body due to imbalances caused by improper diet as well as poor lifestyle. Such disorders can be rectified by eliminating the root cause itself. This form of therapy imparts a number of health benefits thereby paving way for a healthy lifestyle.

Benefits of Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional Therapy offers a host of health benefits, which are not only confined to the physical wellbeing of the body, but also help a person to be relieved of mental stress and fatigue.

  • Some of the most important health benefits of nutritional therapy include healthy immune system, increased energy levels of the body and enhanced overall functioning of the body. The underlying approach of this therapy aims at providing the body with the nutritional elements which are not present in it in recommended amounts. As a sound body leads to a sound mind, nutritional therapy also de-stresses the mind.
  • Type 1 diabetes can be controlled by insulin therapy whereas Type 2 diabetes is caused due to a poor diet, metabolic disorders and careless lifestyle. Nutritional therapy encourages the intake of fibre rich food and the reduction of caloric intake, and saturated and trans-fats. It recommends eating 5 – 6 times in a day for diabetic patients. Major emphasis is given on green vegetables and sour or sour-sweet fruits.
  • Digestive disorders mainly happen due to improper food intake or bacteria. The nature of the stomach is to remain acidic as it prevents bacteria and parasites from harming the digestive system. Use of synthetic antacids blocks the stomach’s performance naturally. Therefore the best way to get relief from digestive disorders is nutritional therapy.
  • Nutritional therapy also takes care of the skin by regularly removing toxins from the body. This helps in preventing any kind of skin or hair infections, leading to glowing and healthy skin and hair.

Nutritional therapy is a holistic approach which takes care of the human mind, soul and body and provides tremendous health benefits to both healthy and sick individuals alike. The fundamental focus on aiming at the root cause rather than dealing with the symptoms makes the therapy more meaningful and beneficial for anyone who intends to follow it.
